“Every adventure requires a first step”
– Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Today is Lewis Carroll’s 185th birthday. It is a great time to revisit a classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1865. A journey like no other, Alice tumbles down the rabbit hole and encounters a variety of engaging characters. Equal parts discovery and non-sense, it is a must read for those who have yet to experience the original Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, and Queen of Hearts. And worthy of a re-read for those who haven’t picked up their copy in a while. Although nothing about Alice’s adventures can be considered traditional travel, imagination often provides the best kind of adventure, and books are the perfect way to get there.
